  • Posted in thread: Calling all smokers! Smoked rye porter recipe help on 01-22-2016 at 04:51 PM
    Stupid question, but does smoked malt retain appreciable diastatic power? IE, can it actually
    convert other grains? I swear I've seen "0" values in tables online...Most smoked malt
    definitely has the ...

    I thought I saw that they would be seasonal 4 packs... did that change?This is correct. Red's

    I haven't done either, but my mom always does a lot of canning at home, and to sterilize her

    MoreBeer's version used 4 lbs of LME and 2 lbs of rice DME, which I figured was over 33%. I was
